STUTTGART, Germany (AP) Home favorite Angelique Kerber rallied to upset Caroline Wozniacki 3-6, 6-1, 7-5 in the final of the Porsche Grand Prix for her second straight title on Sunday.
After losing the opening set, Kerber twice broke the fourth-seeded Dane in the second. Wozniacki saved three match points at 6-5 in the third set, but Kerber took her fourth chance to win in 2 hours, 4 minutes.
"In the end I needed all my reserves. I'm really, really proud to have managed it in front of my home crowd," Kerber said after claiming her first WTA title at home and her fifth overall. The 14th-ranked German also won at Charleston earlier this month.
